Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Donald Glover are a force to be reckoned with in their own right, but imagine what they could do together. We’ll soon get to see what a collaboration between this duo will look like because they’re currently developing a Mr. & Mrs. Smith series together.
Based on the 2005 feature film starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Mr. & Mrs. Smith centers on a married couple of rival spies. The new TV version was co-created by Francesca Sloane, who worked with Glover on Atlanta, and it’s expected to premiere on Amazon in 2022.
Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, described Waller-Bridge and Glover as two of the most talented creators and performers working right now and said they’re a true dream team that perfectly fits into the world of Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
“It’s truly a dream for us, as it will be for our global audience, to have these two forces of nature collaborating as a powerhouse creative team. Mr. and Mrs. Smith is an iconic property, and we can’t wait to see how Donald, Phoebe, and Francesca make it their own,” said Salke in a statement.
The original movie was based on a script by Simon Kinberg and directed by Doug Liman. It was a huge commercial hit, with $487 million grossed worldwide.
